Chargers 2019 rookie report card: Jerry Tillery

As we review the team’s 2019 campaign, there will be individual report cards for each of the team’s draft picks. Everything in regards to their rookie season will be considered, including on-field statistics and how they meshed with the organization.

We will also go back and look at initial thoughts on each player following their selection last April.

Jerry Tillery was chosen at the end of the first round, a pick many considered great value as it was thought he would likely be off the board at that point. Tom Telesco felt that the value was too good to pass up and selected Tillery, hoping to get a player that would be able to provide a brick wall against the run game while also being athletic enough to get after the quarterback.
